Phantom King(s') Lair

Creation Date: October 31st

The Phantoms are the first and only major antagonists in Jamaa. For unknown reasons, they terrorize Jamaa, of which they were born into. It is also unknown where they came from. Phantoms first made their actual appearance on Jamaa's first Night Of The Phantoms; before then they were only mentioned from Animal Jam Headquarters, AJHQ for short, of being the upcoming villain. As of September 29, 2016, there is the Pet Phantom, which are introduced as the only good Phantoms in Jamaa.


Phantoms come in a variety of shapes and sizes with a few common features. They are usually a pitch black, circular blob with a single, large white eye that has a small black pupil. Phantoms also tend to have tentacles that stick out from different sides of their body.

Types of Phantoms

Normal Phantom

These are slightly small creatures with six or more tentacles. When approached by an animal, they produce a blue-white electric arc in an attempt to shock the animal.


These are much smaller than regular Phantoms, only being the size of Pets. Instead of regular tentacles, they have one or two small black plump tentacles on the right or left side of their head. When approached by a Pet, they become scared and attempt to flee.

Phantom King

Phantom Kings are much bigger than regular Phantoms. They have violet-purple round spots around the bottom half of the body and a cracked-looking set of spikes on the head, like a crown. When approached by an animal, they float up into the air and slam back down into the ground in an attempt to stun the animal.

Phantom Goop

The Phantom Goop appears to be large, slug-like goop piles with violet-purple outskirts. They have one large eye in the middle which is followed by three much smaller eyes.

Phantom Coral

The Phantom Coral is an unusual type of phantom that consists of a blob with many sharp spikes in an irregular shape. When touched by an animal, it will produce a white electric arc in an attempt to shock the animal.

Pet Phantom

The Pet Phantom is a friendly kind of phantom that seemingly only wants to be loved.This is the only phantom with good intentions and the only non-animal pet.

Structures and Devices

Phantom Sprouter

The Phantom Sprouter looks like a very old pipe ruin, with rotten plants growing out of it. Phantom Sprouters can appear out of almost nowhere, taking the player by surprise. They spawn about one Phantom every few seconds, with seemingly no limit. This can actually get very out of hand if the Phantom Sprouter is not destroyed quickly. A Phantom Sprouter can be defeated using one boomseed. However, sometimes the timer will lag out, causing another Phantom to be spawned directly during the destruction of the Sprouter.

Phantom Pipe

The Phantom Pipe is a large purple pipe connected to the ground. It is often seen spewing out a purple liquid that is contaminating the environment or blocking a path.

Phantom Watcher

The Phantom Watcher looks similar to a Phantom with no tentacles, except without any movement. They stay perfectly still, hovering above a small prism. Their attack method is to use lasers shooting from their eyes. The lasers are a deadly one-hit-knockout, instantly sending the player back to the latest checkpoint if touched. The lasers are commonly used as for a puzzle effect, forcing the player to try to get past them in order to complete an objective. They can also be dodged by hiding behind a wall. Phantom Watchers cannot be deactivated from Chomper Plants or BoomSeeds, but sometimes can be deactivated using a nearby switch.

Phantom Lookout

The Phantom Lookout looks like an eye looking through a bulb. It casts a triangular beam of light across the walking path, and moves back and forth. If an animal crosses the beam, Phantom Webs appear, trapping the player inside, while 2 Normal Phantoms approach the player. The beam does go away in regular increments. The Phantom Lookouts are currently only included in The Phantom Fortress.


The Phantoms came through Dark Portals, and they quickly spread through the uninhabited regions of Jamaa. Wherever the Phantoms went, they left a trail of spoiling destruction.
~ AJHQ on Animal Jam Insider's Guide, "Rise of the Phantoms"


According to the legend from the Beta Testing, it was Mira who made the very first Phantoms from her tears. However Animal Jam Headquarters has since changed this, currently saying that the Phantoms came from a foreign world and could have evolved from there. As of now, Phantoms currently have a much bigger variety of creation.


According to the new legend, Phantoms first appeared through Dark Portals from their own world during the time where Jammers fought with each other. It is unknown why they came to Jamaa, but they seem to want to destroy it. Phantoms started to steal the animal's Heartstones, which caused the animal species to be trapped inside. They took all the Heartstones until there were only six animals left (Pandas, Koalas, Monkeys, Bunnies, Tigers and Wolves). The six remaining animals then started to gather and start an army to fight against the Phantoms. Later, after Mira and Zios' travels to look for help, the Alphas came and helped with the military after being chosen by Mira and Zios to do so. When the Phantoms were defeated and started to flee, they defeated and kidnapped Zios, leaving behind his mask, and went into a Dark Portal. Mira followed them quickly into the portal as well. It is unknown what the Phantoms have done with the two guardian spirits.


Return of the Phantoms: The Phantoms first appear in the Return of the Phantoms, where they terrorize a Bunny village by destroying their crops and kidnapping some of the villagers.

The Phantom Portal: The Phantoms also appear in The Phantom Portal, where they try to get one of the Phantom Kings into the main land of Jamaa by opening a portal-gate to the Phantom realm.

Meet Cosmo: In the Meet Cosmo adventure, the Phantoms terrorize a farm where Koalas live by polluting the waters and kidnapping farmers.

The Hive: In The Hive, the Player enters one of the Phantom bases. At the end, a Phantom King appears to try get rid of the Player and the player must defeat the King to finish the adventure.

The Great Escape: In The Great Escape, they have taken over the Great Tower and are quite happy to take the Player as a prisoner. The player must find a way to escape the Tower and get to the top to see what the Phantoms are doing. In the end, it is discovered by Greely that the Phantoms plan to use a volcano to destroy Jamaa.

Greely's Inferno: The next adventure, they go ahead with the plan on destroying Jamaa only to be stopped by both Greely and the Player.

The Search For Greely: At some point between Greely's Inferno and The Search For Greely, they have taken Greely captive. They are seen when the Player enters the Phantom Vortex while trying to stop the player from rescuing Greely.

Bubble Trouble: In Bubble Trouble the Phantoms seem to be making a factory of some sort while kidnapping four Dolphins, which the player must free.

In Too Deep: The Phantom Factory is open, and the player must shut it down while freeing the 4 kidnapped sharks. The Phantoms begin to attack when the player starts to destroy their factory. At the end, it is discovered that the Phantoms captured the Dolphin Alpha, Tavie.

Turning The Tide: The Phantoms try to prevent anyone from rescuing Tavie and they have easily captured the Bottlenose Brigade. Near the end, many of them are defeated by both the Player and the Bottlenose Brigade in the process of rescuing Tavie.


The Phantoms appear in all types of games in Jamaa. Mostly being the villain of them all. They appear in games such as Falling Phantoms, Wind Rider, Fruit Slinger and Hedge Hog. They also appear in all the Summer Carnival games as targets.

Side Games

They briefly appear at the start of Tunnel Town in the short animated video. The group of Phantoms try to kidnap a female Bunny but was stopped by the bunny's supposed lover. The biggest Phantom of the group creates a portal where the male bunny is teleported to another dimension. It is unknown if Phantoms can do this on the main game. They also appear in AJ Jump where they try to prevent the Player from going higher by striking them with their electricity.


There are a number of phantom-themed items that can be purchased. Many of these items are seasonal and available only during the Night of the Phantoms, but some others can be purchased year-round.


Phantom-themed costumes allow Jammers to dress up as a Phantom.

Trapped Phantoms

Despite their tendency to electrocute innocent Jammers, Phantoms are actually sold in Jamaa. They come in a variety of cages, crates, pens, and cells but they are always animated. Each Phantom is securely locked up, so that they may not escape.

  • Occasionally, Phantom electricity comes in colors. The original electricity was blue, then changed to red, then again to purple. More colors were shown on items such as green, pink and yellow.
  • The meaning of "Phantom" is Ghost. This is understandable because of their ghostly behavior and movement.
  • At the Summer Carnival, you can get cotton candy shaped as a Phantom by choosing black cotton candy, followed by white cotton candy, then black cotton candy again.
  • During the Night Of The Phantoms the Mira's Statue is replaced by a giant red Tall Phantom Statue.
  • Night Of The Phantoms, go to the forest and dance around the fire. Something will happen (with enough people). (Yes, something does happen.)
  • Some believe that phantoms were born from Mira's tears when she was grieving about the death of Zios.
